13 months (a few days late)

it was my plan to post on the 6th of each month - this has just been a busy month. from may 6th to june 6th i lost 6 1/2 pounds. the weight loss has certainly slowed down, but i expected that to happen the closer that i get to goal. i am also re-thinking what my goal should be.

many people who have had weight loss surgery will follow-up with plastic surgery in one form or another to remove excess skin. i didn't realize just how much that excess skin could possibly weigh and from information i have gathered, depending on how much weight you lose, this can add up to 10-15 pounds. and can also account for 1 to 2 dress sizes. so, now all i need is around $30,000 for a complete body lift - hahaha!

weight loss up to june 6th ( 13 months) is 157 pounds - WOW!
